The new couple has to find a way to get to know each other and experience love the first time without any personal space in a massive city of 18 million eyes.

The directing and the acting is wonderful in the movie, however, it’s not a fluffy romantic comedy. Its tone is often depressing and also deals with the unjust gender politics that still affects most (Indian) people.

Love and Shukla is a fascinating Bollywood romance drama that will squeeze your heart and entertain you at the same time.

Watch it on Netflix.

5| Jab We Met (2007)

The age-old tale with an annoying heroine and a cute (and of course wealthy) hero. But don’t worry it’s a likable version. Jab We Met is a joy from the start and will give you plenty of laughs.

It’s a wonderful movie about love and constipation. A story about Piku a successful architect and her aging, eccentric father. Getting a life of her own seems impossible because the responsibilities of her work, home, and a hypochondriac father weigh her down.

They’re both being strong-headed and stubborn but also deeply attached to one another. One day Piku’s father Bhaskor emotionally blackmails her to take a road trip from Delhi to native Calcutta. That’s when Rana the owner of the local cab company gets into the picture.

Together they learn to deal with each other’s moods, idiosyncrasies, and of course, Piku finally finds love as well.

It’s a beautiful, quirky story about love and father-daughter relationships with a slice of romance on the side (And lots of toilet humor… in a good way.).

Piku is an incredibly funny and touching Bollywood drama with a hint of romance.

2| Barfi! (2012)

With gorgeous visual storytelling, fantastic acting, a bittersweet story, and beautiful homages to Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin Barfi! is a perfect choice for a romantic movie night.

The story is mostly set in Darjeeling where Barfi a charming deaf boy falls in love with two girls and their often trying but inspiring and unique relationships turn his life upside down. Barfi! is a beautiful movie about self-love, selfless love, and finding happiness in the smallest of things.

Don’t worry be Barfi!

The three leading actors (Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Ileana D’Cruz) were all perfect in their characters but the real heart-stealing is committed by Ranbir and Priyanka.

This film is many things… is a uniquely original (and fun) exploration of complex philosophies, but it’s mainly about love, friendships, laughter, and letting go.

PK, a humanoid alien arrives at earth to observe humans. His first interaction with us happens when a man steals the only device he can use to communicate with his spaceship. Since PK can’t leave, he starts a years-long journey to find his device so he can finally get home.

While both actors Anushka Sharma and Aamir Khan did an amazing job with their characters Aamir clearly steals the show. PK is just as funny and charming as he is weird.

PK is odd, charming, funny and one of the best Bollywood fantasy dramas with romance and comedy.

Watch it on Netflix.
